1 Conditions for the use of the Australian Qualifications Framework Logo 1 The AQF logo The Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) logo is a distinguishable mark of quality for identifying and promoting AQF qualifications as specified in the AQF. 2 Permission to use the AQF logo The AQF logo can only be used in association with AQF qualifications. Any use of the AQF logo must be in accordance with the standards in section 5 and any recognised standards for ethical marketing and advertising. 2.1 Authorised issuing organisations and accrediting authorities, including organisations that are authorised to self-accredit, 1 may use the AQF logo without prior approval from the AQF Council on: testamurs and graduation statements (see section 3) student information (see section 4.1), and advertising and promotional material (see section 4.2). Authorised issuing organisations and accrediting authorities may use the AQF logo in other circumstances. Prior approval by the AQF Council is required and will be considered only for the single use requested (see section 4.4). 2.2 Other organisations may use the AQF logo in certain circumstances in the context of the Australian education and training sector (see section 4). These organisations are required to obtain prior approval by the AQF Council in all circumstances. 3 Use of the AQF logo on testamurs and graduation statements For the use of the AQF logo on testamurs and graduation statements, the Conditions for the use for the Australian Qualifications Framework logo must be read in conjunction with the Australian Qualifications Framework First Edition July 2011, in particular the full AQF Qualifications Issuance Policy. Either the AQF logo or the words The qualification is recognised within the Australian Qualifications Framework will be used on testamurs or graduation statements for all AQF qualifications as specified in the AQF Qualifications Issuance Policy. AQF Council approval is not required for this use by authorised issuing organisations and accrediting authorities, provided the standards in section 5 are met. The AQF logo must not be used on: Records of results Statements of attainment, or Testamurs or graduation statements for non-aqf qualifications. 1 Authorised issuing organisations and accrediting authorities are defined in the Australian Qualifications Framework First Edition 2011 which is available on the AQF website The use of the term accrediting authorities in this policy includes those organisations authorised to self accredit.

2 4 Use of the AQF logo in other circumstances The AQF logo may be used in some other circumstances as detailed below. For any use of the AQF logo, the standards in section 5 must be met. 4.1 Student information Authorised issuing organisations and accrediting authorities may use the AQF logo in any student information about the AQF qualifications that they are authorised to offer or are within their legislated authority. This may include course or institutional brochures, course handbooks and prospectuses. The AQF logo cannot be associated with education and training that does not lead to an AQF qualification. Any student information which includes the AQF logo must clearly distinguish between AQF qualifications and those which are not AQF qualifications. The impression must not be created that may lead an observer to conclude that the AQF logo applies to all education and training provided, if this is not the case. AQF Council approval is not required for this use by authorised issuing organisations and accrediting authorities, provided the standards in section 5 are met. No other organisations may use the AQF logo on any student information. 4.2 Advertising and promotional information Authorised issuing organisations and accrediting authorities may use the AQF logo to advertise or promote AQF qualifications that they are authorised to offer or are within their legislated authority. This may include printed documents, the internet or the media (newspaper, journal or television). The AQF logo cannot be associated with education and training that does not lead to an AQF qualification. If an authorised issuing organisation or accrediting authority is promoting both AQF qualifications and qualifications that do not meet the requirements specified in the AQF, it must be made clear that the AQF logo is not associated with those that are not AQF qualifications. The impression must not be created that may lead an observer to conclude that the AQF logo applies to all education and training provided, if this is not the case. AQF Council approval is not required for this use by authorised issuing organisations and accrediting authorities, provided the standards in section 5 are met. Other organisations may be granted approval from the AQF Council to use the AQF logo in the media, advertisements, press releases, articles and promotional information related to AQF qualifications and in the context of the Australian education and training system.
